 Post subject: Auto guider to replace modded Phillips webcam
PostPosted: Wed Feb 20, 2013 11:10 pm 
Hi all,
Just a parallel thread to my CCD vs DSLR thread - I want to upgrade my guiding equipment from the webcam to something like a QHY6.
Can anyone offer any insights as to whether this is he way to go?
Cheers
Andy

I choose to image with an 11" SCT Celestron in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard......

As always, i can rely on you Dean & Carl to provide proper guidance.

Ive also commissioned lego to cost the production of building an HEQ mount (dont worry - I'll get you both a discount :o
